  • Border fences grow, as does debate that rages over them

    (Critics: They're useless; Supporters: They're absolutely essential) NOGALES — Three men prop a ladder on top of a tree branch and lean it against a 15-foot border fence made of steel tubes so close together a man can't fit his head through. One by one, they climb over and shimmy down the other side, landing in the United States at the bottom of the Mariposa Wash, about two miles west of Nogales. They jog north across a concrete road, fading into the brush. On a nearby ridge, a U.S. Border Patrol agent watches, then jumps in his SUV and speeds...

    Our Readers Who Comment are up in arms this morning about the news that the government will protect Citigroup against potential losses on a $306 billion pool of troubled assets. Those readers have hated bailouts from the moment they were first proposed, and that anger has not diminished in the weeks since. They complain that huge banking companies who stiff them with astronomical interest charges for being a day or two late on their credit cards are getting help, but they're not. They wonder why government seems less willing to assist the auto industry and its threatened workers than it...

    “Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Psalm 2:3-4 As I’ve been discussing for the past week, God is in control. Consider the story of a five-year-old playing basketball with his 6’10” brother. When the little boy says to his older brother, “I’m gonna stomp on you,” the older brother has little reaction but to laugh. It’s totally preposterous that a boy who cannot even tie his shoes can win against his older, taller brother. But, isn’t it amazing when the enemies of God...

    Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against his Anointed One. Psalm 2:1-2 There are many in this world who would shake their fists at God. They’re angry. Before we become self-righteous about their anger at God, I think we need to take a close look at our house as well. Could it be that they look at us and see a lack of devotion to Christ and his teachings? Consider the areas that this might display itself. You...

Then he lost me: “And what’s gonna surprise ya,” he told McCain, “it’s not the economy.” Not the economy? Pal, I don’t know what Kool-Aid they’re serving in your bunker, but you need to lay off. Anger over the “socialist take-over” may be dominating the message boards at the John Birch Society, but for normal Americans, it’s not even on the radar screen. McCain has absolutely got my...

I figure since I'm forced to enter the fray just to get to work, I may as well get some pics of the moonbats on "Peace Island" (Cowleen Rowley's little makebelieve world of unicorns and moonbeams) and other similar nuttery. Maybe I can find a new replacement Anglo-European version of Rage Boy in the process.

    Senator John McCain, the Republican candidate to become the next US president, is prone to uncontrollable fits of rage which those in his camp worry could be a liability, both in November's election and the job itself. His wife has defended his outbursts as signs of "passion". But even some of his friends and supporters worry that displays of irrational anger could prove disastrous if he became the most powerful man in the world, with a thermonuclear arsenal at his fingertips. A member of one of Washington's most respected Republican families told Sky News: "Everyone in Washington's political circles has...

In recent weeks, Sen. Edward Kennedy and Rep.

    MUMBAI: An Islamic group in India is asking Muslims to boycott products of a top Indian business group if its owner does not apologise for hosting author Salman Rushdie on a brief holiday this week. Rushdie stayed at the bungalow of the Godrej family while visiting Mumbai, where he was born and spent many of his early years. The author is a personal friend of the Godrejs, who are one of the big business families in India. The fact that Rushdie was invited by the Godrejs has angered the All-India Ulema Council - a national grouping of Muslim organisations -...

    NEW YORK: It has been well documented that, across human cultures and in most mammals, males are more aggressive than females. It's simple to blame male hormones but a new study has found the role of brain in the behaviour. A team of researchers at the Vanderbilt University in the United States has carried out the study and found it is the human brain which processes aggression as a reward much like sex, food and drugs. "We have found that the 'reward pathway' in the brain becomes engaged in response to an aggressive event and that dopamine is involved. "It's...

The Pope's address at the University of Regensburg in his native Bavaria is a beautifully woven piece of meditation on the relationship between faith and reason, a subject of immense importance today as it has been in the common history of various cultures striving to reconcile what paradoxically seems irreconcilable. The Pope mentioned a conversation between an "erudite Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus and an...

    RIYADH (Reuters) - In the five years since the September 11 attacks, U.S. intervention abroad has fed the extremism it seeks to destroy and cemented the rise of political Islam as the ideology of choice for millions in the Middle East, experts say. Today, political Islam -- a diverse movement with moderate as well as hard-line elements -- has been widely embraced in the Arab world, where many feel alienated by corrupt rule and foreign policies seen as serving the interests of the United States and its ally Israel.

    CAIRO, Egypt -- Anger toward America is high, extremists are on the upswing and hopes for democracy in the Middle East lie dashed. The Lebanon war is creating dangerous ripples in the war on terror, the future of Iraq -- even the effort to keep nuclear weapons from dangerous hands. "America, we hate you more than ever," Ammar Ali Hassan wrote in the independent Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm, in the kind of visceral, slap-in-the-face rhetoric boiling across the region. So far, the violence has not led allies to take steps that directly hurt America's strategic interests, such as forcing the...

On one side of the political gulf there are the fanatical win-at-all-costs Democrats whose vital ideological core does not believe in the legitimacy of the Republican Party just as abolitionists didn’t believe in the legitimacy of slavery and the Southern Democrats in the legitimacy of Lincoln’s presidency.

    The Danish government stepped up efforts Tuesday to curb the damage caused by the publication of cartoons in a Danish newspaper linking the Prophet Muhammad to terrorism. But the moves failed to allay Muslim anger as retailers boycotted Danish goods in the Middle East and protesters in Gaza set fire to photos of Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. The economic fallout continued, with the French supermarket chain Carrefour announcing it was pulling Danish goods from its shelves in Arab countries. A day after the Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, apologized for offending Muslims, the Danish foreign minister, Per Stig Moller, handed out...

    Latin America: With all the wounded puffery of a bully, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez last week singled out the president of Mexico with the hoary epithet of U.S. "lap dog." It's proof he's losing his own war over free trade. Ahead of July's Mexican presidential election, the four-point rise in the polls of Vicente Fox's PAN party on the heels of the Chavez outburst signals it's clearly backfiring. Mexicans are rallying around their president. Chavez attacked Fox precisely because Mexico is one of the world's leading emblems of free trade. It has signed 27 trade pacts, more than any other country...

    "Bush, a hateful (edited) himself, nominates a hateful (edited) to the Supreme Court, even as his circle of hateful (edited) narrows under indictments" Samuel Alito. This is the guy Bush chose to replace the Bob-Dylan/birdwoman Harriet Meiers. Alito's record shows he supports HUGE restrictions on civil rights. Here is how a well-known law journal summed up his views on minorities and women: "Alito has a disturbing record in cases involving discrimination based on race, disability and gender. Under his judicial philosophy, victims would face near-impossible burdens to..." The AP reported today that Alito was going to the Capitol Rotunda with...

    I pick up a copy of the NY Times yesterday, and read an arts brief with the headline "Diversity Still a Problem For Hollywood Writers." ... A few minutes after reading this story, I get a call from my TV agent at ICM, telling me that the new management of Lifetime is not very interested in The Dirty Girls Social Club TV show. That, in fact, they wanted to "kill" it immediately, but that they are willing to listen to a re-pitch. That means that even though Lifetime owns the option for now (meaning I can't do anything with it)...

    Love her or hate her, America can't seem to get enough of Sen. Hillary Clinton. The latest literary examination of the former first lady — "The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It, and How Far She'll Go to Become President" by Edward Klein — has produced an interesting ripple in the Zeitgeist. Nobody much likes it. That liberals dislike the book comes as no surprise, but that conservatives are distancing themselves from Klein is interesting. As a former New York Times Magazine editor, part of the liberal mainstream media that members of the VRWC (Vast Right-Wing...

    Authorities say a disagreement over a frozen snack led a McComb teenager to fatally shoot his father and threaten his mother. Curtis McCray Jr., 16, was arrested and charged with murder last week after allegedly shooting Curtis McCray Sr. with a shotgun from about 20 feet away, the Pike County Sheriff's Department said. Investigator David Haywood said the shooting occurred after the teen was punished for being involved in a minor wreck, and the boy became enraged when his parents returned home eating Sno-Balls and there wasn't one for him. The teen then allegedly threatened his mother, Gloria, with the...

    In some key ways in Washington, the most politically engaged individuals in both parties do not understand each other. Democrats think Republicans are mean. Republicans know Democrats are the mean party. Knowing that, let's do a thought experiment. Close your eyes and imagine this. President Bush is introduced at a great gathering in Topeka, Kan. It is the evening of June 9, 2005. Ruffles and flourishes, "Hail to the Chief," hearty applause from a packed ballroom. Mr. Bush walks to the podium and delivers the following address. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. I want to speak this evening about how...

    LONDON: The reason behind teenagers' usually gruff reactions to simple requests from their parents - monosyllabic grunts, uncontrolled rage and door slamming - has finally been explained. Scientists from the US have discovered that the brains of teenagers are not fully developed and lack the ability to multi-task effectively - a skill that continues to develop into late adolescence. In other words, their outbursts, the archetypal catchphrase like "It's so unfair" are only to be expected, as their brains cannot cope with the competing demands of their parents and social lives, reports the Scottish daily Scotsman. The research done by...

    "Oops, sorry. It looks like we were wrong." Thus Newsweek apologizes for its story in last week's issue that American intelligence interrogators in Guantanamo desecrated the Koran in front of Muslim prisoners and flushed it down the toilet - an error that has to date cost the lives of 16 people killed in the anti-American riots that the story set off in various parts of the Islamic world. One wonders why a supposedly responsible magazine like Newsweek didn't manifest a tad less credulity toward a report indicating that American intelligence is run not only by anti-Muslim barbarians, but also by...

    The man accused of stabbing to death his 8-year-old daughter and her best friend hunted his child down in a park in a fit of rage because she was supposed to be confined to the house for stealing money, prosecutors said Wednesday. A judge denied bail for 34-year-old ex-convict Jerry Hobbs after prosecutors said he admitted in videotaped and written statements to beating and stabbing his daughter Laura Hobbs and 9-year-old Krystal Tobias on Mother's Day. He claimed the older girl pulled a knife on him, but prosecutors said they doubt that. The girls were found dead Monday in a...

    A husband who assaulted his wife after she bought the wrong brand of baked beans was ordered to pay Ł500 compensation yesterday. David White, 42, flew into a rage after noticing that his wife, Sharon, had bought HP beans when he wanted Heinz. Mrs White had intended to buy Heinz beans but the shop only had HP, which she knew White would be annoyed about. White threw the beans at her at their home in Rhydyfelin, near Pontypridd, but they missed. He continued to shout abuse that evening and kicked Mrs White in the thigh, the court was told, telling...

    TALLAHASSEE -- Slowpokes could get a $60 fine for hogging the fast lane and ticking off motorists who want to pass. The "Road Rage Reduction Act" is speeding through the Legislature following a 27-10 vote in the Senate on Thursday, two days after the House passed a similar bill by an even wider margin, 109-4. A spokesman for Gov. Jeb Bush said the governor must still evaluate the issue. The bill requires drivers to stay in the right lane unless they're passing a vehicle or making a left turn. Supporters -- including the Florida Sheriffs Association and Florida Police Benevolent...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- So now we're supposed to believe that American sports -- and American society -- lost their innocence because baseball players used steroids to hit home runs. Repeat after me, please, and say it loud: American sports have never been innocent, and America's capitalist society has a built-in set of checks and balances because we know unfettered competition for money breeds corruption. So, Sports Illustrated, spare me the whining about the congressional hearings on steroids and baseball. Spare me the whining about the lost summer of '98 and what to do with your scrapbook. I was a...
